    Overclocking a 512MB Gainward HD4850Golden

    I purchased HD4850Golden a sample from Gainward (700MHz and 1100MHz frequencies). when I exceed the 700 MHz with the GPU (eg 705MHz) and I launch a 3DMark06, the first 2 tests passed without problems but as soon as the first test comes cpu: blue screen Is this normal? Do you have an idea to make my card stable above 700MHz?

    Thanks

    The memory got a boost from the reference 993MHz to 1100+ (effectively 2200+MHz). Although the memory isnít running at maximum factory speed of 1200MHz (0.8ns), i still limited by 1100MHz. Catalyst Control Center allowed for overclocking the core to 750MHz (CCC driver limitation), but i didnít manage to push the memory by more than 10MHz.
